Hi everyone! Hope you're all having a nice life! :)

I recently learned about this new tool to control, configure, manage and use wireless networks.

iNet Wireless Daemon (iwd) project aims to provide a comprehensive Wi-Fi connectivity solution for Linux based devices. The core goal of the project is to optimize resource utilization: storage, runtime memory and link-time costs. This is accomplished by not depending on any external libraries and utilizes features provided by the Linux Kernel to the maximum extent possible. The result is a self-contained environment that only depends on the Linux Kernel and the runtime C library.

I installed it and must say it's working really great; my Wi-Fi seems to be more stable, keeping a constant speed.  To install just launch a terminal and run
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install iwd then follow instructions from Debian's wiki https://wiki.debian.org/NetworkManager/iwd
